OS : OSX 10.15.6 (Mac air)
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): c2020.2.10
Standard Standalone? (y/n) If not then what?: y
What are you trying to achieve?: I’m new to psychopy and am just trying to run a demo experiment (stroop) and/or making a simple Posner task based on youtube tute.
What did you try to make it work?:
I opened the demo stroop task, and ran experiment. I also followed steps of tute to create a Posner task and ran.
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
The experiment seems to load, and after I enter participant ID, it opens a screen and immediately crashes.
Here is the error code:

PsychHID-INFO: That worked. A subset of regular mouse, keyboard etc. input devices and maybe some vendor defined devices will be available at least.
